Chelsea Clinton will appear in conversation with Lissa Muscatine, co-owner of Politics and Prose Bookstore in Washington, D.C., during a breakfast keynote at the American Booksellers Association’s sixth ABC Children’s Institute, which will take place June 19–21 in New Orleans.
Chelsea Clinton, the daughter of former President Bill Clinton and 2016 presidential contender Hillary Clinton, is the author of the number-one New York Times bestselling picture book She Persisted: 13 American Women Who Changed the World, which received a starred review from Publishers Weekly, and She Persisted Around the World: 13 Women Who Changed History (both Philomel). She is also the author of the New York Times bestselling It’s Your World: Get Informed, Get Inspired & Get Going! (Puffin Books) and, with Devi Sridhar, Governing Global Health: Who Runs the World and Why? (Oxford University Press).
This fall, Clinton will publish Start Now! You Can Make a Difference (Philomel), a middle-grade title geared toward young activists. Featuring photographs and comic illustrations, the book is filled with facts, stories, and tips on how to change the world.
Clinton is the vice chair of the Clinton Foundation, where she works on many initiatives, including those that help to empower the next generation of leaders. She lives in New York City with her family.
Lissa Muscatine purchased Politics and Prose with her husband, ABA Board member Bradley Graham, in 2011. Muscatine is a graduate of Harvard and a Rhodes scholar and, prior to owning the bookstore, served as a senior advisor and director of speech writing for the State Department.
After leaving the Washington Post with 12 years as a reporter and editor, she became a White House speech writer during the Clinton administration and was a collaborator on Hillary Clinton’s memoir Living History (Simon & Schuster). Muscatine is currently writing Hillaryland, her story about working with Hillary Clinton, to be published by Penguin Press.
The breakfast keynote will take place from 7:45 a.m. to 8:45 a.m. on June 21 in the Grand Ballroom at the Sheraton New Orleans.
